ricardo plc (RIR) Key Developments

Ricardo Opens New Vehicle Emissions Research Centre

Ricardo has announced that it has opened a new facility to develop the next generation of low-emission vehicles. The company has spent GBP 10 million - supported by the UK government Regional Growth Fund (RGF) - on the Vehicle Emissions Research Centre (VERC), which is located at its Shoreham-by-Sea (United Kingdom) headquarters. The company says that the purpose-built facility has been developed with both flexibility and efficiency of operations in mind, with 'generous heat soak and preparation areas'. With growing pressure on automakers and suppliers to reduce emissions, this new research centre will no doubt heavily support Ricardo's efforts in this area. The facility offers the opportunity to carry out climate-controlled tests in a temperature range from minus 30 degrees Celsius to 55 degrees Celsius, as well as a range of humidity levels. It can also be configured for four-wheel-drive powertrains, simulated road speeds of up to 250 km/h, and light trucks up to three tonnes. Tests can be conducted on a range of powertrains including hybrid, electric, and associated energy regeneration and battery state charge. On the exhaust emissions front, its measurement systems are capable of a range of standards such as Euro VI and VII and US SULEV. One feature the company highlights is the triple Constant Volume Sampler (CVS) tunnels, with a third tunnel added exclusively for the very lowest SULEV emissions projects on top of gasoline (petrol) and diesel. The vehicle soak space has also been constructed as a series of independent climatic zones to ensure that sub-zero soaked vehicles are maintained at their target temperature throughout their transition to the test cell, and it also includes two integrated cold boxes with separate climate control.
